Oatmeal Water Kept Extremely Oily Skin Matte All Night

5 posts in this topic

The natural effects of oatmeal for the skin have been known for quite some time. Most people use the oatmeal as a face wash/exfoliator when in the shower. I have used it and have seen the oatmeal 'milk' that comes out when it is in contact with water. I think as a face wash method it works alright.

If you type in "oatmeal milk face mask" on google, I think it's the second link, (wikihow) tells you a way easier method of obtaining the the milk. Just an FYI.

While it is nice to see your enthusiasm about your discovery I wouldn't get your hopes up after using it just one time. Let's see how the oatmeal primer holds up during the day when you are around people and different climates then when you are sleeping at night and your face is at its calmest state. Either way keep us informed.

Lol I could tell you were just really excited about not having any oil. I understand. I haven't found any kind of primer, lotion, mask that keeps the oil from eventually penetrating to the surface. You are a girl so I know there are mattifying agents you could probably use.

When I use it I noticed that it completely calms the redness but once I wash it off, the redness returns. I tried putting jojoba oil on over it as a moisturizer but the oatmeal mask kind of crusted through and it felt weird. What kind of moisturizer do you use on top and do you have any problems with flaking?
